Suzanne Bocanegra: When a Priest Marries a Witch, an Artist Lecture by Suzanne Bocanegra, Starring Paul Lazar
In 2010 the Museum of Modern Art asked Suzanne Bocanegra to give a lecture about her work. For that lecture she made a theater piece When a Priest Marries a Witch, an Artist Lecture by Suzanne Bocanegra Starring Paul Lazar. Paul Lazar, an actor long associated with the Wooster Group and co-founder of Big Dance Theater, performs as her, telling the story of how she became an artist, growing up in Pasadena, Texas. Part personal narrative, part cultural history, the piece focuses on a wild scandal that happened in her local Catholic church: a tale about identity, artistic expression, the Pope, and obviously, a witch.
